Korrupt 's review of αrchεtyρε 's Saigon:
“The track opens with Martin Sheen saying 'Saigon', a sample that comes through the mix immediately. Archetype implements some other interesting samples – hinting at pace, as if something is on the move. Ghouly sounds enter the mix giving the intro a mystical vibe! The percussive elements surface before the drop sound serious...
“The first drop is heavy, with the nicely layered kick coming forward in the mix. There's no real snare involved in the mix, giving the percussion in the high-end to develop and leave serious damage on the listener. The low-end comes forward nicely, with straight pressure hitting the listener’s eardrums (while the mid-end growls try and infiltrate). The elements sound very intimidating; haunting the listener the whole time. More percussive elements fade into the mix while the drum patterns stay quite the same until the listener hit the break.
“Archetype implements panning on the high sounds in the break, with the Apocalypse Now sample returning and developing. The percussion pattern fades in and out of the mix until the break ends and the listener gets sucked right into the second drop. The second drop sounds hypnotising, mostly through the repetitive drum patterns and alarm-type sounds hitting the listener. Although more progression would be welcome, this is one of those tracks the listener won't forget easily – it gets stuck in the mind like it's supposed to!”
Any track that samples Apocalypse Now is going to be a good one; and this intimidating 320 from αrchεtyρε is just that...
